The SIXTEENTH Year for wearable ART Promises a SWEET end to Summer!
It’s hard to believe that it was FIFTEEN years ago (seventeen, if you count the COVID years) that The Dunedin Fine Art Center’s (DFAC) incredibly successful wearable ART fashion show made its debut before its first SOLD-OUT crowd. Now in its 16th year, this always surprising event promises to continue to be the standard against which all other art/fashion shows are measured. DFAC is calling it a SWEET 16 event, but if you have ever attended this exhilarating show, you know that ANYTHING can happen.
wearable ART was indeed one of the first in the area 15 years ago to showcase a growing contingent of artists working in fashion related ways. It continues that tradition in its sixteenth year featuring runway presentations by Mark Byrne, Rya DeMulder, Neva Durham, Bay to Bay Designers , Cindy Linville, Olga Saretsky, Frank Strunk III and Lina Teixeira. Adding to the festivities this year, will be a gallery exhibit by Leslie Joy Ickowitz entitled Windows in Time. All of this is crowned by the incredible hair & make-up artistry of Salon GW.
“With the inimitable Frank Strunk III coming back, Kikimora up again from Miami, and the rest of this year’s incredible line-up, THIS is going to be the year that people talk about ,” claimed Catherine Bergmann, DFAC’s Curatorial Director. “The thing is, ALL of the designers seem to up the game very year… It just keeps getting more fantastic, if that’s possible?” she concluded.
Great music has always been a hallmark of ALL DFAC events. This year’s wearable ART will be no exception. Both the the Pre-Glow and After-Glow parties will feature LIVE Music
This is a huge event and takes two facilities to pull it off! Tickets are available for every budget!
This year, those prized seats go for $85, $115 or $135, and go on sale July 25th to the public. If past years are any indication, you’ll want to score your tickets early, while they’re still available.
Back by popular demand, is the PARTY TICKET for $20 this year. Enjoy the pre and post parties with this indoor standing-room option…. enjoy all the music and fun and catch the runway show on a HUGE video monitor… Now, you have NO excuse for missing the art party of the year!
wearable ART 16 – August 27th, 2022 at 7:00 pm Pre-Glow– Runway Show starts at 8:00 pm. After-Glow to follow.
